Soldiers Destroy Camp Belonging To Herdsmen In Benue

The Nigerian Army has shared photos of burnt camp belonging to suspected herdsmen in Gbajimba-Akor axis in Guma local government area of Benue state.

It was gathered that some soldiers encountered alleged armed herdsmen along the Gbajimba-Akor axis in the State and razed their camp on Saturday, August 4, 2018.

A statement issued by Army spokesman, Brig. Gen. Texas Chukwu, revealed that troops of Operation Whirl Stroke in the state  encountered the “armed militiamen with large herds of cattle.”  And the soldiers “dislodged the armed militiamen from their camp following superior firepower.”

Chukwu added that an unspecified number of the alleged armed herdsmen were suspected to have been killed by the troops, “while others escaped into nearby bushes with gunshot wounds. Efforts are on to get other fleeing members of the armed militiamen by the troops.”

Items recovered included; one AK 47 rifle, two AK 47 rifle magazines, 60 rounds of 7.62 mm special ammunition and five motorcycles.

Chukwu went on to encourage members of the public to report suspicious movements or activities in their area to the law enforcement agents for prompt action.
